Jacee Badeaux's 'American Idol' New Orleans Audition -- Justin Bieber's Vocal Doppleganger? (VIDEO)

by Elizabeth Chan, posted Jan 20th 2011 10:30PM

Throughout the entire 'American Idol' New Orleans auditions, the producers were touting Jacee Badeaux as the audition you couldn't miss.

Was I wrong to expect Badeaux to come to the audition with the voice of an angel or a boy version of Jackie Evancho? As much as we want you to watch this TV Replay clip, I suggest you close your eyes and ask yourself:

"Doesn't this guy sound just like Justin Bieber?"

All he has to do is lose some of that baby weight and we've got the second coming of David Archuleta.

'American Idol' airs Wednesdays and Thursdays at 8PM ET on Fox

Sounds just like Beiber? Please.... this kid is much more versatile, has a better range and better voice than the one trick pony Beiber kid. But he still has a ways to go to match the versatility, range and voice of David Archuleta. If he keeps practicing and singing as much as he can he could eventually get to where David is now. But by then Archie will have continued his growth and moved forward so who knows? :)

Listened to the clip you posted and he has a nice voice. But he is nowhere near as good as David Archuleta. So are we going to have another year where they are going to try to compare everyone to David. Well sorry there is only one David Archuleta and he is the best! We will keep the one we have.
